SportsShoes x Muslim Hikers: The Roaches, Peak District
Written By: SportsShoes
Sportsshoes and The North Face are proud to support Muslim Hikers and we're delighted to announce the co-sponsorship of their next hiking event; The Roaches, Peak District on Sunday 27th November 2022.
The Roaches in Staffordshire is a Peak District gem. Located above Leek and Tittesworth Reservoir, it’s loved by hikers and climbers alike. The impressively rugged and steep gritstone ridge is home to mythical mermaids and 15 metre natural gritstone clefts, so this is far more than your average countryside walk.
This is a fantastic opportunity to meet like-minded hikers & adventurers from across the country and enjoy a scenic social trek as part of a professionally organised event with qualified mountain guides.
Whether you're a seasoned mountaineer, or a first-time walker, everyone is welcome regardless of religious background or ability.
This is the our second collaboration with Muslim Hikers as we work together to promote inclusivity and diversity in our outdoor spaces.
*Unfortunately, due to popular demand, registrations are now closed for this event*
These events always sell out quickly so please book early in future and ensure you're on the Muslim Hikers mailing list at www.muslimhikers.com
What is the Muslim Hikers group?
Muslim Hikers is a grass root initiative set up to help empower and inspire Muslim communities to get outdoors more. What started off as just an Instagram page for online community during lockdown has now rapidly grown into a massive global community with hundreds joining their hiking events across the UK. Muslim Hikers is part of the Active Inclusion Network, which also includes Muslim Cyclists and Muslim Runners.
Visit the Muslim Hikers website for more information about the The Roaches hike and all other upcoming events.
